Main Street Brewing in Vancouver BC has released their new limited-release Barrel-Aged American-Style Barley Wine.
This American-style barley wine was brewed with ESB, Melanoidin, and Crystal Rye malts and hopped with Columbus and Cascade for a dank/piney hop profile, before being aged for a year in second-use bourbon barrels.
The Melanoidin malt added a biscuit flavour, while Crystal Rye adds some spiciness, culminating in an assertive bitterness and some residual sweetness. The barrel-aging rounds everything out with a vanilla and oak character.
Bottles are available now at the Main Street tasting room and coming soon to your local liquor store.
10.5% ABV | 77 IBU
